What is a true friend but one who makes a documentary about the life of another? That’s what Martin Scorsese is doing for his old buddy Roger Ebert, anyway, the infamous film critic who wrote one of the first positive reviews for Scorsese’s debut film Who’s That Knocking At My Door? and helped to launch his career.
Ever since, the two have remained close friends, with Ebert often granting Scorsese’s movies four star reviews, and Scorsese just, well, loving the heck out of that. Now it’s pay-back time: Scorsese’s documentary – based on Ebert’s memoirs Life Itself – is set to debut at the Telluride Film Festival in 2013.
Whilst attending Columbia College Chicago last week for a talk, producer Zak Piper stated that the production will kick off today with approximately 20 to 25 days of shooting scheduled. The project will shoot at both Ebert’s home and at press screenings, »
